Thank you all again for all the tips and advice. I am feeling good. Must have been the vinegar and cauliflower. Boy was that scary though with all that I have going on.
We have just about everything personal out of FIL's house and moved over to where he is living. He seems happy to be getting all his things around him. He also admitted that he is happy that he won't be living on his own anymore. So that was good and he says he loves the attention and all the gals that care for him. And they all are so sweet and nice and seem to love him. I love that about the Mexican culture. There are two other residents there that are both Alzheimer's patients and that is a bit discouraging for FIL as he is so very smart and sharp. So he can't really communicate with them and they are really "out there". What a sad disease. It is just so sad to watch people not be able to communicate or know what it up. FIL says that is the only thing he doesn't like is having to be around that and we understand....but as he says he has his music (he is a classical buff) and his computer with head phones. But you should see the way the Mexican nurses hug and love on the other Alzheimer patients. They are so sweet to them. FIL was somewhat sad as one of them had an "incident" that waS upsetting and FIL had some tears and said that he never wanted to be like that and to "shoot" him if he gets like that. We all told him there was no way he was getting like that. His brain is so sharp. He still does the NY Times crossword puzzles in like 10 minutes! I wish my mind was as sharp as his. And he did say that he still has a sense of humor and knows how important that is....the one old gal thought he was her husband and wanted to sleep in his bed.....so they are going to put a lock on his door with a key hanging up that the nurses can get into fast and he can get out fast so he doesn't have any night time visitors....; )
So all is going well. We have more to do today then I can totally focus on packing for trips.
Hope you all have a terrific day
